SCORP Survey

The Statewide Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP) is extremely important because it allows Mississippi to be eligible to receive federal funding for improvements and additions to public recreational facilities.

Part of the SCORP update includes public input; therefore a public survey has been produced in an attempt to reach as many Mississippi residents as possible. The survey is intended for respondents to share observations concerning recreational facilities and activities. Results of the survey will be published in the 2019-2024 MS SCORP report.

Take the survey here.

On Friday, September 21st the City of Jackson Department of Planning and Development will be hosting its first PARK(ing) Day event from 12pm-10pm. PARK(ing) Day is an annual event that encourages community members, businesses, students, and designers to transform metered parking spaces into temporary parklets. Parklets are a sidewalk extension that provides more space and amenities for people using the street. Usually parklets are installed on parking lanes and use several parking spaces. The City of Jackson will be designing its first parklet downtown on Congress St. between Amite St. and Capitol St. The mission of our PARK(ing) Day event is to call attention to the need for more public space to generate critical discussion around human scale development and policy.

For more information about the event check our Facebook link for updates:
